Two years ago, white dominated everywhere… Neutral shades followed, then bright pink and peach tones. These days, even though bold purple was declared by Pantone as the colour of this season, the Pinterest community disagrees; it voted sage as the crowds choice. This relatively new, neutral, but very cute colour has overwhelming support by fashion designers, stylists, decorators, and by the general population of course. Why not incorporate it into your wedding then?
WRITE A LETTER!
The invitations and thank-you cards (that you will place on your wedding dinner tables) could be in distinct sage tones. The lettering, the envelopes, even the actual design and ribbons could be green!
GRAPHICS & DECO
The colour that has been declared by Pinterest as the most eye-catching definitely deserves a spot on the wedding table. You can use greenery with varied tones for the centrepiece; if your budget allows, you could even place a name tag for each guest on their plate, listing the menu as well possibly, designed in the wedding’s colours.
Forego the overused black or blue suit and go for a green shade; from olive to sage, many great choices are available.
If you prefer simplicity, you could avoid outrageous colours for your flower bouquet and pick field flowers with great natural green shades, combined with white.
Imaginative choices are endless! If you picked olive as the décor theme, you could replace rose petals with olive leaves for the moment you’re exiting the church.
Your wedding cake might very well act as the focal point of interest during the reception, especially if you decorate it with shades of green.
Everything depends on your wedding dress choice. If you’re not one of those brides that faithfully follows the tradition of a white wedding, then the colour of sage is one the freshest choices, and will add a unique character to your presence.
Your almond-shaped nails can be highlighted even more by using a sage-coloured nail polish, or even fresh almond!
THE PERFECT EYELINER
In makeup, shades of green are always a favourite with women. Even more so when dealing with one of the most important days of their lives. This year, sage dominates in many collections, so it can form the main part of your eyeliner and define your eyelids with sharpness and elegance.
Fashion designers have chosen it for their creations, and shoe makers have added their own sage touches for their most modern designs. Pick them for your wedding day!
Ask the florist responsible for your wedding to make boutonnieres filled with sage and white flowers. It’s as natural as you can get.
Gift the flower girls that will accompany you during the duration of the ceremony, a romantic dress in the colour of the sage tree; they will want to keep it forever!
Pantone adds colour gradients to their palette each year. Sage has its own, with many different shades. Which one will you choose for your wedding?
